These cartridges burn slowly, emitting plumes of smoke. They contain the only composition for producing safe, non-toxic colored smoke.  The smoke poses no known health or safety hazards when used responsibly.  Shelf life is 3 years! Though our stock is turned over several times a year.   Ignite with butane lighter, use in smoke cup etc.  

Use caution as cartridges/powder burns hot and colors WILL stain objects that are directly next to the smoke stream.   In general, if you are at least 30-40 cm from the smoke cartridge staining should not occur.  We have sold these for many years to photographers, top fashion magazine shoots etc, all without incident.  Use common sense!

Use WHITE if staining is a concern. Must be used on a non-flammable surface such as aluminium pie trays etc.  Our color smokes are compatible with each others, so you can burn the smokes side by side (in a trail) having a color change effect or mix them together to create your own custom color.

Dark Grey is best for burning buildings for film/sfx work.  All smokes can be crushed and used in smoke cups etc.

Smoke colors are classed as NON DANGEROUS goods and do not require any licence to buy or use.  However USE COMMON SENSE!

Prices are nett as listed. NO quantity discounts.

We suggest you light with a small propane jet lighter.


Colour Smokes are classified as non-dangerous goods, no permits or licences are needed to purchase or use them.  However they have been developed for use by photographers, sfx technicians etc. USE RESPONSIBLY. A detailed instruction sheet is included with each order.

They can be lit with BBQ lighters (yellow flame).The best and fastest way to light is with a blue flame lighter as below.
